You're tooling along in your Buick Riviera on U.S. 29 in Howard County. In front of you is a Toyota 4-Runner. You reach a traffic signal at Scaggsville Road and pull alongside the Toyota.You hear and feel thumping music from the vehicle, but all you see are black windows. No faces. No silhouettes inside the Toyota. Just black windows."You don't know what's in there," said Richard Egerton of Elkridge. "You get the feeling you're being stared at, but you don't know. I want to be able to see the person next to me. It's like they're trying to hide something."

SOME PEOPLE USE dark sunglasses to avoid recognition. Some motorists use tinted windshields -- or dark covers over their license plates -- for the same reason.In a decision expanding police search powers, a federal appeals court ruled last week that government's interest in officer safety gave police the right to open the door of an automobile with tinted windows and search the passenger compartment during a traffic stop.The driver, Billy Howard Stanfield, had argued the bag of cocaine Baltimore City police found in the back of his sport utility vehicle should not have been used as evidence against him because officers had no probable cause for a search.

Few police officers carry light meters, so what they do when they spot a window on a car that appears to have been tinted too much? Maryland law is very specific: The amount of light transmitted through the glass cannot be less than 35 percent. But as with many issues, it can come down to a judgment call. And since this one can be quantified, if the officer is wrong, it should be a fairly easy ticket to get thrown out. But Ravens running back Ray Rice didn't get a ticket. He told reporters on Tuesday that the Baltimore County police officer who warned him about his tinted windows in Owings Mills "was doing his job. " The player said he regretted wording in a Twitter post in which he seemed to be bragging that an officer let him off with a warning in exchange for an autograph.

Ravens running back Ray Rice probably didn't have much free time this week to begin with, as the Ravens play the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday. But he had to spend part of Tuesday explaining a recent tweet anyway. Rice posted on Twitter Monday night that he was pulled over by a Baltimore County police officer because of the dark windows in his white Range Rover. Maryland State law prohibits car windows from being tinted at more than 35 percent, a limitation enacted primarily to ensure police officers can see inside vehicles as a safety measure.

Howard County police announced this week that they are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man they suspect robbed two Ellicott City banks this month. On Jan. 14, the man entered the Provident Bank in the 3200 block of North Ridge Road, implied that he had a weapon and demanded cash. As the robber fled, a dye pack that the teller hid in the stacks of money exploded, forcing the thief to drop the cash on the parking lot. Dye packs often release red smoke and a red dye that stains the bills, making them unusable, according to a Web site, howstuff works.

If you walk around Annapolis' Robinwood public housing community in the day, you won't see much out of the ordinary. Some teens play basketball near a dilapidated playground, a mother hurries her toddlers into a car, three girls sit in front of their home, braiding each other's hair. Come back at night and it's a different picture. Cars - some with out-of-state plates and heavily tinted windows - cruise the street. Loud music blares. Teenage boys stand in clusters on street corners. When the sun goes down, residents say, the neighborhood gets "hot."

The game pitted a team led by a local politician against a group of high school teachers. A couple hundred Randallstown High School students watched from the bleachers, not with any expectation of seeing great feats of athleticism. They were there for a charity basketball game, and they were there to have a good time on a Friday afternoon. They jokingly booed the politicos, and they cheered their teachers. A deejay played music with a heavy beat. The game was close at the half, but the politicians pulled away to win. Afterward, Robert A. Zirkin, the state delegate who organized the game, was chatting with friends in the parking lot. He saw a black BMW with tinted windows -- and, police would later say, a handgun in the trunk -- pull up. About that time, dozens of students streamed out of the gym into the warm afternoon air. They headed toward the school parking lot. Trouble apparently had been brewing for at least three days.
